A British study released Wednesday came to show that people recovering from the epidemic can acquire high levels of antibodies, which would protect them from infection for at least six months.
The scientists said that the study, which measures previous levels of infection with Covid-19 among the population across Britain, as well as how long the antibodies lasted in those infected, provides some reassurance that a rapid second infection will be rare.
“The vast majority retain antibodies that can be detected for at least six months after infection with the Coronavirus,” said Naomi Allen, a professor and chief scientist at the UK Biobank, where the study was conducted.
The results showed that among the participants who had previously tested positive for COVID-19, 99 percent retained the antibodies for three months. After a full six months of follow-up during the study, 88 percent of the antibodies remained.
Allen said: “Although we cannot be sure of the relationship of this to immunity, the results indicate that people can be protected from infection again for at least six months after infection.”
She added that the results are also consistent with the results of other studies in the United Kingdom and Iceland, which concluded that the antibodies to the Corona virus will likely remain for several months in those recovering.
